Tingling on bottom of foot after non-weight bearing for 8 weeks

hello

I broke my Talus bone and had surgery 6 weeks ago—2 screws. Since the accident its been about 8 weeks, so i've not had any weight on it since then. Have had a soft cast, hard cast, and now I'm in "the boot". Dr said xrays are looking great, so he gave me the go ahead for 50% weight, using crutches.

as im doing this, Its not so much painful, as it is uncomfortable, with a tingling sensation on the heels and ball of my foot—like pins and needles when your foot falls asleep.

Its hard to practice walking due to this, and i also want to make sure this is "normal" given my situation. Any help and insight would be great!

Thanks in advance

Re: Tingling on bottom of foot after non-weight bearing for 8 weeks

I have a similar situation I have had tendinitis for about a week now in my ankle and it was swollen for a while but now it seems to be getting better, and the swelling is getting less and less. I also notice sometimes I feel tingling like pins and needles in it lately as well.

My guess is that it is due to the blood flow returning to normal which is definitely a good thing. In my case I am pretty sure it is positive because I am finally able to run at my semi normal speed again and as you said you are putting 50% weight back on your foot so I would assume its the blood flow and actually a positive thing.

Hi, just had talonavicular fusion 3/25/13. At 5 weeks N WB. I too seem to be having pain in instep and puffy purple toes. Hope to have good X-ray report next week. Did you have new cast with build up to walk or some kind of boot? Good luck with your healing, sounds like your a week or so ahead of me.

Just replied to you, didn't include that I also had ankle fusion 5 yrs ago. Can't remember too much except for a lot of swelling even after final cast removal. Please ask for PT wish I had. My TN fusion is quite common after ankle fusion, sorry to say. Take care. Don't give up!
